I stopped in at the Jail House Brewing Company in Hampton, Georgia and tried the Breakout Stout for something a little different from my usual. And I really enjoyed the roasted flavor with a touch of chocolate and a bit of hops to keep it from being too sweet. Very nice. I’m glad I made the trip.
I stopped at the Terrapin Beer Company in Athens, Georgia after driving all the way from Atlanta where I was located for a conference but I missed the brewery tour at Terrapin by ten minutes. What a bummer. I did get a chance to try their beers, most notable for me was the Hopsecutioner IPA. This is truly a hop lover’s IPA. Several varieties of hops are used in making it but they are blended with enough malt to even out the taste. Very nice and well worth the trip even though they wouldn’t let me on the tour.
